    I do apologise if there is a subforum for this, but I sure as hell couldn't find.it.

    What do people plan to do with their gap years if they are taking them? I am hopefully doing mine with project trust, so I shall be teachiung English in some far off place while trying furiously to learn the language. It would be great to know what other people are doing with theirs (especially if they are doing the same as me).

    Hmm, I think I shall include a poll.

    I have a friend who's gone on a mini gap year - she left more or less straight after her last A2 exam and is coming back in two weeks or so. Sounds like a good plan to me, I'm already planning my 'mini-adventure' backpacking around Europe for 2 or so months.

    I think i'll take a year out after my degree and before i do anything else (maybe a PGCE). I'd love to teach English in a foreign country or help at a kids camp or something.

    If everything goes to plan, and I manage to earn enough money I hope to do the following in my Gap Year;

    Firstly I want to head off to Nepal to do some teaching over there for about 2-3 months, most probably with Teaching and Projects abroad. After that I want to stay in Nepal and complete the Everest Base Camp Trek which takes either 15 days or 21 days depending on where you get your flights from.

    Later in the year I would really like to visit Borneo and do the three highest peaks there, but that all depends on my money reverses.

    Isn't a gap year a waste of a year? Bleh, so ambitious I just want to start work as soon as possible not delay it by an extra year. Also, there is around 2/3 months free before university which you can spend doing gap year stuff.

    No not at all, i worked part time for 6 months and managed to save 5K towards uni. Without that money starting uni would have been a real struggle financially. I also ended up having to resit A levels, but aside from that if i do go to uni this year i'll be financially more secure as well as having an extra year in which to mature.

    It's a personal thing.

    I am going to China for 6 months to teach English. I leave in February and I go with Gap Activity Projects. I'm so excited, will be a once in a lifetime experience. I should find out pretty soon whereabouts I am going and who my partner is going to be.

    I am also learning Mandarin Chinese at the moment, and it is very very hard!

    "Wo hwei shwo ee-dyar putonghua!"

    That is all I can say at the moment. It means "I can speak a little bit of Mandarin!" And I believe that is true
